Frontstretch’s Truck Series content is presented by American Trucks

For the first time in his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career, Ryan Truex will lead the field to the green flag.

Truex won the pole for tonight’s The House 225 from Chicagoland Speedway with a lap of 175.982 mph (30.685 seconds) around the 1.5-mile tri-oval in his No. 16 Hattori Racing Toyota. The pole is the first of Truex’s NCWTS career, which has spanned 35 starts.

Truex is currently seven points behind Ben Rhodes for the eighth and final playoff spot in the series. Tonight’s Truck Series finale is his final chance to make the field. Truex has amassed five top fives and nine top 10s this season but three DNFs have hindered his playoff push.

Chase Briscoe will roll off second in the No. 29 for Brad Keselowski Racing. Briscoe earned his fourth front row start this season and was followed by Christopher Bell, Johnny Sauter, and Matt Crafton.

Rounding out the top 10 will be Noah Gragson, Austin Cindric, Grant Enfinger, Justin Haley, and Myatt Snider.

Enfinger, Haley, and Gragson are all currently on the outside looking in when it comes to the playoff picture. Rhodes, the man they all have to beat will roll off 13th.
